Hi Missoph,
You've probably completed your exam by now - how did you go?

To answer this question, consider CAR 42ZC, specifically (4)d

(4) Subject to subregulation (5), a person may carry out maintenance on a class B aircraft in Australian territory if:
(d) the following requirements are satisfied:
(i) the person is the holder of a pilot licence that is valid for the aircraft;
(ii) the maintenance is specified in Part 1 of Schedule 8;

(iii) the maintenance is carried out in accordance with any conditions prescribed by legislative instrument issued by CASA for the purposes of this subparagraph;

So if you hold a pilots licence valid for an aircraft, you can do the maintainence specified in Part 1 of Schedule 8.

Part 1 of Schedule 8 has a title

Schedule 8—Maintenance that may be carried out on a Class B aircraft by a person entitled to do so under subregulation 42ZC(4)

and item 22 in Part 1 - Schedule 8 has the important bit

22. Carrying out of a daily inspection of an aircraft.
